Monday, first 5 days week in ages. Doesn’t feel good. The office is 600 degrees. I spilt honey in my bag this morning. I also spilt coffee on my lap.
Let’s hope all the bad things are happening right now and that later on, the match will give me all the goodness I need back in my life.
Arsenal. Be good to us tonight.
Arsene Wenger has been having some big chats around winning the title next year, in the right way.
‘You cannot play 38 games in the same convincing style,’
‘You need to have a balance in your team so that if you are not at level of fluency you can still win the game.’
This is a new train of thought for the manager and a welcome one. You also can’t play 38 games with the same player, regardless of how good those players are. Hopefully Wenger will build more trust into his starting line up next year. The man in danger of being the go to person every game is Coquelin. He’ll need a side kick. Front runners look like Schneiderlin, Kondogbia and Gundogan.
We’ll possibly need a person to come in for Theo Walcott. A lot of people saying that could be Chamberlain, but look, he’s great, but always injured so you need to bring some strength in there.
In other news, Arsenal have launched their new community hub! 1500 people can use it per week, they get to play on 4G grass which is pretty sweet. It’s a really nice project and it’s great to see Per and Coquelin got down there to join in the fun.
Tonight we have a big game against Swansea, as Alex said the other day, this is hugely important because the difference between 4th and second is massive. It’d be huge progress. We need to win our last 4 games. That’d take us to 82 points (3 points more than last season). A brilliant achievement from where we were at the start of season. We just need to hope the players don’t take their holidays early, which is always the danger at this time of year.
Same could be said of Swansea, they’re not going down now. They have little to play for, so it could go either way for them as well.
Right, short one today. Have a good one!
